Most of us have run or at least have heard about the Color Runs, Mud Runs, Hot Chocolate Races, etc., but what about a full 5k race with an obstacle course at the end?
Miracles Fitness is starting the first ever Stone Harbor Fitness Challenge 5k. The race is on July 12th, 2014 and starts at 8am. The race course starts at 83rd street right near the Windrift and it costs $35. You can register here.
What’s unique about this race is that you run the 5k first and then once you are exhausted and think you can’t do anymore you have to complete the nine all encompassing total body challenges set to test your fitness. Some of the challenges include Burpees, Med Ball Slams, Hurdle Jump Overs and more.
Even though the weather in Stone Harbor is always beautiful in the Summer, on the off chance it does rain, the race will still go on rain or shine.
You do not need to be a fitness freak to sign up for this event. Anyone can sign up for this event, you can race/walk it for fun, or at a competitive level. There will also be awards given to the top finishers in all categories.
Nick Elisano Trainer and owner of Miracles Fitness came up with this idea.
“With all the popularity of all the obstacle races we wanted to do something different related to fitness, Elisano explained. With all the boot camp programs and sports performance programs we thought this would be a great combination for runners and fitness enthusiasts alike.”
This race definitely sounds like it will be one of the best races of the season for Stone Harbor. So if you are around make sure to sign up and enjoy this one of a kind race!
